Rihanna’s Style Archive!!!

The headlines this week saw pop princess Rihanna strutting her stuff (her half-naked stuff) around a field in the middle of the Irish country side, as crowds of fans gathered to see the star record her newest music video for single We Found Love, she unwaveringly banged out her dance routine and even stripped off for a topless frolic in a corn field, errrm did someone say culture clash??!!! I mean, a muddy field beside a dual carriage way, off the Belfast to Bangor road  isn’t exactly my idea of glamour!!! The artwork for the new single was released today and the blurry/grunge cover is a million miles away from some of Ri Ri’s red carpet looks!

I’m not sure if I prefer the elegance of a gown and heels or the grit of baggy jeans and boots on Ri Ri, I’ve put together some of my fave red carpet outfits from the star, what do you guys think?

This look was from May 2010!

Bold and beautiful! Feb 2011!

a more elegant look for the risqué singer in June 2007!!

Stunning! January 2011

Very few can carry canary yellow, with plum hair… not so sure about this one..!

Wearing a whit Herve Ledger dress, and pale Loubi’s, this is picture perfect!!! So what is the verdict?!!

Gareth Pugh at Paris Fashion Week!

If you’re a fan of the down right crazy ‘high end’ fashion world then you’ll already know that Gareth Pugh takes the crown for innovative risque seasonal lines.

The runway was host to an assortment of leather cages and plastic teardrops encasing the models’ heads as Gareth debuted his new line! The 30-year-old British designer went all out to shock yesterday with his very uncomfortable-looking ready to wear collection, with designs looking too rigid to wear, I’m a massive fan of couture but seriously Gareth, who (apart from Gaga of course) is going to strut through the West End wearing a cage?

Fan or not you must at least appreciate his creative vision, and blatant ability to STAND OUT! The designer previously stated the collection was about “elegance and beauty” and was inspired by old Spanish and Italian couture… Hmm I can’t quite see it, what do you think?!

You can watch Gareth’s full show for his S/S ’12 range here!

Kate Moss, Lily Allen, and Cat Deeley all have one thing in common… and no it’s not the fact that they’re all gorgeous super rich British celebs! The thing in common is Charlie Brear, a very lovely British stylist! She is the founder of the Vintage Wedding Dress Company who supplies all vintage obsessed bridezillas with their gowns 🙂 Her beautiful collection consists of  something pretty from every decade right up to the 1990’s!

Soo word on the grapevine is that the VWDC will be holding a trunk sale at their glorious central London showrooms on Friday 7th, Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th October 2011! I’ll be having a private viewing of the collection and CANNOT wait!!!

Rihanna Sizzles in Irish Countryside!!!

When I think of the Irish countryside, I see rolling hills, greenery, sheep, maybe the odd horse annnd Rihanna swooning around rocking a tiny red brassiere and a tartan shirt??!!! Yes Rihanna’s new video to her single with Calvin Harris! they were both warned that expectations are high!!! The duo promised they would deliver, and told fans to expect something ‘different’… Rihanna swanning around the Irish countryside certainly caught the locals by surprise!

Ri- Ri flew to Bangor, County Down, Belfast, and yesterday began filming the video for her collaboration with dance music producer Calvin Harris. She definitely proved she’s willing to get her hands dirty to get the job done!

Earlier last week Rihanna posted a series of messages about her new song on Twitter to nearly 8 million followers before the track was given its first airplay on Thursday. She Tweeted: ‘Btw I just HAVE to say a special Thank You for aaalllll the #MAJAH support on my first single WE FOUND LOVE!!! Hear it on iTunes if u haven’t.’ I’m overly excited about the new vid!!! I wonder… Will Calvin be sporting tartan, rolling around in a field in the middle of the Irish countryside too??!!! Hmmm… We hope he find’s a new field as the owner of the land asked that filming end earlier than originally planned when he felt it had become “inappropriate”!!!

Pink… the new Blonde.

Ok so fuchsia pink hair isn’t really anything new, but new model Charlotte Free, who was discovered by Dame Vivian Westwood has taken the Fashion World by storm!!! She walked in New York, London and is set to feature in various shows in Milan too! Apart from the obvious fact that she has pink hair to set her apart, she is unlike the vast majority of her counterparts as she’s full of opinions… which she airs freely via her Tumblr page!!!

After seeing her strut her stuff down the catwalk I got a distinct feeling of de ja vu!! Then it hit me… Charlotte certainly isn’t the first model to don pink hair!!!

 Yes our very own Kate Moss has rocked a pink maine, in both editorials and on the catwalk… Sorry Charlotte looks like Kate set the bar a while ago..!!! Let’s take a quick look at some of my fave ‘fuchsia haired’ beauties over the years!!!

GWEN… I love her! Setting the trend waaay back in 1999!

And of course we couldn’t talk about pink hair without mentioning … well PINK!!! I know not everyone can rock the pink hair look , but right now that bottle of pink dye is looking more and more tempting!!!

Sunday Best!!!
